Over the past five years there have been a significant number of fires in NSW related to halogen down-lights. Halogen down-lights create a lot of heat and if they are not correctly insulated, installed and maintained they can cause a fire. Halogen lights generate very high temperatures which can get anywhere up to 370C.

Ceiling downlights are a serious fire risk thought to cause at least one home fire per week by igniting roof insulation, and because they burn in the roof cavities above fire alarms residents only know their house is burning when the ceiling collapses.

They are installed in thousands of homes across Australia. Downlights are the modern, trendy way to light up your home in more ways than one. Protect your family and your home by installing Isolite Downlight Covers, exclusively available through Austech. The only way to prevent fires is to isolate halogen downlights from all combustible material with an approved downlight guard. Feel at ease with the knowledge that the Isolite covers will stop the downlight coming into contact with flammable material, preventing halogen downlight related fires.

Contact Austech to enquire about your very own set of Isolite Downlight Covers or simply visit Austech's Online Shop for huge savings on your purchase. Learn more about Austech's or the benefits of Isolite Downlight Covers.
